Ladies and gentlemen, feast your eyes on the cover of Maxim’s September issue. Yes, that is my future husband Idris Elba on the cover. September’s issue has put away the scantily clad models, to make room for the actor. Elba has now become the magazine’s first solo male cover.
And boy is he fine as ever.
Yes, I understand Elba may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but that’s good. There’s more for us to sip.
“We’ve never in US Maxim history had a man on the cover solo,” new editor-in-chief Kate Lanphear told Racked. “This is the very first time, and there was no one else in the world more badass than Idris.”
Bad ass is an understatement.
Feast your eyes on his spread:
And his Maxim video:
The issue hits stands today!
